STUDENT CONTEST WINNERS HONORED FOR RAISING AWARENESS ABOUT DATING ABUSE AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

Boise, ID – The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Public Service Announcement (PSA) contest. Judges and staff were impressed with the high quality submissions, which provide information and resources about dating abuse and healthy relationships to teens and young adults.

The contest winners are:

1st Place in the Category of Healthy Relationships: Megan Schuessler, Boise High School

Megan’s Video

1st Place in category of Teen Dating Abuse: Tracey Anderson and Hannah Ladow, Compass Academy Idaho Falls

Tracey and Hannah’s Video

Best in Show Award for Highest Overall Score: Megan Schuessler, Boise High School

 

Contestants were invited to a screening party and awards ceremony at the North by Northwest Digital Studio on February 11th where community members and participants were able to view all 12 of 2015 PSA Contest entries. The three winners were then announced and awarded prizes.

 

The contest invited students to create 29-second videos addressing their peers about issues including teen dating abuse and healthy relationships. The winning videos will be integrated into WCA outreach and will be shared in future presentations to student groups.

“This contest allows students to show their talents and help spread an important message to their peers,” said WCA Communications and Outreach Manager, Chris Campbell-Davis. “We hope that in the process of making and sharing these videos, a difference may be made for at least one young person who may be experiencing an unhealthy or abusive relationship. We are so impressed by the creativity and compassion of each of the participants.”
